      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

    Let it rest ZWolol. We are here for UMP not for PfP.
  2. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    I'll just stop by to say I'm happy to see that the project has been revived. If you guys would like to coordinate fixes between our projects, I'm happy to help. I would like to correct a few things though: My patch was released before getting an invite to these forums. I assumed that the project was no longer active after five years of not updating. Patch of Purists is as much as a patch as UMP/MPP are. All I said to ZWolol is that a patch name itself doesn't necessarily prescribes what should and what should not be fixed. In many cases a discussion about the pros and cons is necessary to determine how and whenever a bug should be fixed. Patch of Purists is still quite conservative in this regard.
